Review: Guerisson 9 Complex Horse Oil Hydrogel Gold Mask ★★★★☆

This fancy gold hydrogel mask claims to rejuvenate, de-wrinkle, hydrate skin. It contains horse oil (500 ppm) as the main ingredient and “9 Complex” which refers to the blend of elite herbal extracts infused into this mask: peppermint, apple mint, sage, rosemary, lavender flower, cabbage rose flower, lemon balm, chamomile, and bergamot. The research behind the benefits of gold in skincare is rather ambiguous, nevertheless it’s very pretty to look at and give a touch of luxury.

$18.99 for a box of 6 on Amazon.

Before masking

My skin is slightly irritated and dry today. I’m also sporting a couple of PIHs. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Material

Out of the packet, I caught a fresh grapefruit fragrance. Love it! The gold tinted hydrogel mask came in 2 pieces for the top and bottom of the face, and were sandwiched between 2 plastic backings. What surprised me was the backing, I’ve never seen a one with the branding printed on it. How luxe!

The hydrogels also sported an embossed side and a smooth side. I placed the smooth side on my face for better adherence.

During masking

2-piece hydrogels always give me a great fit, but this one had really tiny eye holes, the material was constantly violating my eyeballs. Adherence was great! Just make sure the bottom piece overlaps the top piece and it shouldn’t slide down. I had it on for 30 mins.

After masking

There was little to no essence left to pat in. My skin felt very hydrated and was slightly brightened and slightly calmed. Skin texture also looked smoother, hydrogels always give me this effect. Finish was silky and tacky.

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

This is better suited for dry skin types!

Go be beautiful!
